The Insider Track: A Video Collaboration Between MR PORTER & Black Tomato


Bespoke travel experts Black Tomato and MRPORTER.COM have teamed up to launch a series of videos and trips inspired by the fashion and lifestyles of designers from four corners of the globe.

In this new series,  the collaboration between MR PORTER with award-winning luxury bespoke travel provider Black Tomato brings you an insider’s travel guide – one that showcases destinations around the world from the points of view of the men who call them home.

For the first instalment MR PORTER headed to Los Angeles to meet Mr Greg Chait, founder of cashmere brand The Elder Statesman. Born in Toronto, Mr Chait moved to the city after graduating from the University of Arizona. His label, which he founded in 2007 after falling in love with a cashmere blanket given to him as a gift, recently won the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, a $300,000 prize for emerging designers. In this exclusive film produced by Black Tomato and MR PORTER, Mr Chait gives you an insider view of the Los Angeles he knows, guiding the viewer around the places that inspire him and define his day-to-day life – from the best eateries and watering holes his local neighbourhood Santa Monica has to offer, to the relaxed, rural setting of Franklin Canyon.
